I signed up for Letterboxd way back in 2015. Yes, really! Although I didn’t actually start using it properly until the end of 2019 and therefore 2020 was the first full year that I logged every single film that I watched. Albeit not as many Cinema films as I would have liked, which leads me on to saying during the lockdown/furlough stage I spent a lot of time logging in the diary all of the films I had seen at the Cinema dating back to 2003 (yes, I still have my Lord of the Rings: Return of the King ticket). This obviously took a few weeks as I also logged the films I have review on here as well. So as you imagine a lot of time was taken to do this. It gives some amazing all-time stats though.
Here we can take a look at my 2020 stats and I am sure no one will be surprised with my most watched films either!
A London gangster named Jack Carter is about t return to his native of Newcastle to investigate the sudden death of his brother in what was supposedly a car accident. He was going to find out what really happened no matter what!
When twenty seven year old working class hairdresser Rita wants more out of her life she signs up for a literature course through open university and is tutored by Dr. Frank Bryant who is having his own issues with his upper-class life and has become an alcoholic in the process to try and cope with everything. They might have just found each other at the right time.
As a Protagonist is on a journey and about to experience the world in a very different manner when given the word Tenet. Fighting for the survival of the entire world he must embrace everything he learns about time.
Two stage magicians engage in a battle to create the ultimate trick after a tragic event occurred when they were just starting out. Robert Angier and Alfred Borden would do anything possible to become the best and remembered.
Dom Cobb is a thief who steals corporate secrets using a very advanced technology in dream-sharing and everything is about to become even more complex as he is offered a huge job of planting an idea into the mind of a CEO using the impossible method of inception.
That’s right the truly incredible start to Christopher Nolan’s darker Batman trilogy was released 15 years ago today, I don’t know about anyone else but that makes me feel incredibly old!?!? I adore this trilogy and Batman Begins is an incredible film. Christian Bale as Batman/Bruce Wayne is very different to what we had previous seen and then you add in Michael Caine as Alfred! Cillian Murphy as Scarecrow is haunting as well!
When Ros, Robbie, Smash and Maudie are thrown together to become a family when their parents David and Alice announce they are in a relationship together as they meet on an arranged holiday in Cornwall. It doesn’t start very well but when magical things begin to happen they might just rethink everything.
Sometimes the hype surrounding a film can build it up so much that you are therefore left disappointed. Which is why I like to put this list together, I mean the disappointment might even be from yourself building the film up as you are excited to see it! Which I guess happens mainly with sequels now.
(L to R) Owen (CHRIS PRATT), Franklin (JUSTICE SMITH), Claire (BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD) and Zia (DANIELLA PINEDA) try and save Blue in “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.” When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen and Claire mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event.
